I have enjoyed her other books but this one seemed like she had missed her publishing deadline and just turned in the rough draft missing the final 4 chapters. I liked the early character development but during the second half of the book the only insight about the characters seemed to be a listing of the "brands" of their furniture and clothing.
I felt cheated and the ending was unsatisfying. I would not recommend this book.
The reader uses their voice to help add excitement and tension to the story. The story could be in any large city with very old buildings with mysterious doors and shadowed pasts.
I enjoyed the concept of investigating a creaky old building to discover it's mysteries. And the feeling that some of the tenants became invested in each other helped to make the reader interested in what they might discover on their hunt for clues.
He can make the phone book sound exciting, especially while running through the Fs and Gs. The inflections and accents help you tell who is speaking and helps paint the picture.
I really enjoyed this book until the last 22 minutes or so. The book was well paced until just before the end and suddenly it seemed rushed and slightly unfinished. The depth of detail became lost in the hurry to wind everything up in the last chapter.
